It was a great day when I photographed Joshua Henry of hit Broadway musical The Heights for Miami Magazine in Times Square on a beautiful Saturday morning in November. We used a Canon 1Ds Mark II and 2 ProFoto 7B packs cranked to nearly full power and a beauty dish for a soft fill to illuminate ?. The sun was slowly sneaking out behind the skyscrapers to the south and we quickly worked to capture the pic before the exposure I was hunting was lost.

This was the 3rd situation we shot that morning and he brought an amazing amount of energy to each situation. I’ll be sure to publish the final images once the magazines gets their turn first.


This is oldie, but I just found the clip.  I have to say that this was one of the highlights of my career…”The Big Picture” in Times Square.  The shot is of the 2007 NBA MVP Tony Parker and it was commissioned  by my client IWC Schaffhausen.  Tony is one of their brand ambassadors and was a real professional during the shoot.  We photographed him at the Bathhouse Studios in the lower east side of Manhattan, a really great place to shoot with an equally incredible staff.

Ah! The sweet taste of “the wrap” on the final day of shooting on the feature film “Watching TV with the Red Chinese,” directed by Shimon Dotan and shot in New York City.  I was the 2nd AC on this shoot as well as the Unit Photographer.  We shot on the Panavised F900 with a great set of Panavision zoom lenses.  The shoot was a great learning experience and an eye opening departure from the world of still photography.  My friends Mike Rossetti (DP), Eric Kim (1st AC) and Michael Fuchs (Steadicam Operator) did a great job on the set.
